We are looking for 1,000 people to donate £5 per month, to underpin our running costs.
Cost of food (outside of donations)
We are blessed with food donations from the public, local churches and local supermarkets. However, often either the amount or types of food donated are simply not enough to cover demand, meaning we have to buy food to feed those in crisis.
We rent a significant amount of space to store food, and make up the food parcels that are given out to clients and distribution centres.
We employ 1 full-time Foodbank Manager, and 1 part-time Foodbank Administrator. The rest of our AMAZING team are all volunteers.
Van running costs
We need a van to pick up food and bring it to our warehouse. We then need the van to deliver food and food parcels to our distribution centres across the town.
We rent a small office space from where we manage the Bournemouth Foodbank.
Other running costs
These include smaller costs such as Telephone / Internet, but they all add up, especially when grouped with some bigger costs – mainly Insurance!
